10/23/1993: Riverwalk received the Excellence on the Waterfront Award in the parks and recreation category in a juried competition sponsored by the Waterfront Center in Washington, D.C. In making the award, this international panel noted Augusta’s long history with the Savannah River and that, in modifying the 75-year-old levee, Augusta had to obtain an Act of the U.S. Congress to allow the levee to be breached and otherwise modified to provide access at key points.
